Loan waiver: BJP, Congress clash over farmers' debt in Gujarat

The Congress and BJP had heated arguments over a private member bill moved by Congress MLA from Visavadar Harshad Ribadiya for debt waiver of farmers in the state. As per the Opposition, the move was necessary since "its because of the anti-farmer policy of the state and Central governments, the farmers are in debt", while the BJP accused the Congress of bad mouthing the farmers in the state as those who did not repay loans.
The bill was eventually defeated by a vote after the Congress refused to withdraw it. Speaking about the issue, Ribadiya said that lack of irrigation facilities coupled with the import policy of the Central government had pushed farmers in the state to the brink."When you import pulses and other farm products in abundance at cheap rates, prices are going to crash in the domestic market. The MSP support being offered to farmers is also a pittance," said Ribadiya even as the Congress members shouted Jai Jawan Jai Kisan.
